Bride & Groom

My sister got married on June 1st this year, this is the card I made for her and her new husband. I would have posted it earlier but you all have already heard that sob story about the apt and such.

I challenged my self to use the Papertrey Ink Makeit Market kit "Luxe Letterpress". Which you can still  buy on their website! It is a great kit and I'm not normally a fan of gold.

How I did the background was actually using the Luxe Letterpress Impression plate like you would an actual letterpress, or what I think a letterpress does. I inked that plate up with some gold ink and shoved it through my Big shot. it was a  bit messy and it did stain the impression plate a tiny bit but I loved the end result =) Also the leaves for the flowers is made with vellum and then colored over with a New leaf ink pad, let it dry for a while or use a heat gun to set it! I like how it gives a little bit of a transparency look.
